  • ...Spacious, under good care... Often renovate . Using for public events...Still beautiful all 4 seasons of the year. .. Inspiring. Relaxing ...
  • I attended a wedding there and it was worth the six hour drive to Springfield to be able to enjoy the nice atmosphere and surroundings.
  • Love the Rose Garden. On the down side, not the best place for Pokemon Go Mystic players!
  • Girlfriend and I love going to this Park. The plants, wild grass, roses are beautiful. This Park is a treasure of Springfield.
  • Very pretty! Bring your camera! Not a huge botanical garden, but definitely worth the time to stop and see. Easy and smooth walking paths around the entire area, as well as some bike paths going around the garden and through the park. Make sure you go early enough to visit the greenhouse at the center of the gardens - it closes in the early evening.
